In this sermon Rev. Nadeem focuses the famous story of the prodigal. In this parable the father of the young prodigal son reflects the character of Jesus Christ who takes all shame and condemnation on himself that was due to the son. God is always looking for the prodigal sons and daughters to return to him. God waits as a longing father.
In the sermon, Pastor Nadeem focuses on the story of the good Samaritan. In this story, Jesus teaches us to be the neighbor instead of concerning ourselves with who is our neighbor. Good neighbor, like the Samaritan in the story, “See, Feel and Respond.”
Pastor Nadeem focuses the parable of the talents in Matthew 25:14-30 and talks about how God calls us to be ready for His coming. God gave us all talents (that include both money and skills) and will take an account. Good and Faithful servants put those talents to work to participate in the Kingdom’s work. Are You A Good and Faithful Servant?
Jesus is coming. There is no doubt about that. And He is teaching us this morning to be ready, because he can come anytime. Who knows Jesus comes right now. So be vigilant. And Jesus tells the disciples to be vigilant every day and every moment because He will come at an hour when you don’t expect him.
In this parable of the Sower, Jesus teaches us an important lesson about how to hear the Gospel. Seed is God’s Word planted in our hearts in many different ways. It’s important how we hear and receive it. In the Gospel of Luke, Jesus said, “Consider carefully how you hear.” Pastor Nadeem talks about the potential of a yielding heart in this sermon.
